I am posting this as I just found it interesting Tate is weighing in on this. This is NOT an opportunity to bash transgender fighters or people!
I think it's a good thing that a big name like Tate is weighing in on the situation. It should be clear by now that someone with Tate's outlook is in stark contrast to my own, however it's important for her viewpoint to be known. I find it interesting though that Tate won't fight her if the opportunity came up, but yet Carmouche would have no problems fighting her, props to both ladies for taking a stance in one way or another on this very hot topic.
